Kathmandu, Nepal: Responding to the widening differences on the issue of party merger, the CPN UML and the CPN Maoist Center are going to hold a ‘decisive talk’ today.
According to a source close to the CPN UML, Prime Minister Oli has invited CPN Maoist Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal at his official residence, Baluwatar with intent to settle the differences emerged over the issue of unifying the party.
It is said that the meeting would be decisive whether to unite the two communist parties on Baishak 9 or buy more time on the name of accomplishing the necessary works related to unity of the party.
It was used to be parroted earlier from both the sides that the two parties will be united as a single communist party on Baishak 9, coinciding with the establishment of Nepal’s communist party in Nepal.
However, possibility of unifying the party within the deadline seems to have averted, thanks to the widening differences among the two parties on ranges of issues including the party ideology, sharing of positions and elections symbol.
Following the widening differences among the two communist parties, the CPN Maoist Center has been demanding equal share in every positions of the party’s committees. The demand of the Maoist Center is being predicted as of a way to backtrack from the decision to unify the party.
